Thanks For Playing, Cristian

Whether it's Cocoon or Awakenings of your favorite other crappy movie, the brief resurgence of Cristian Guzman's career is over. He's out for the year, and is set to have season-ending surgery for a torn thumb ligament.

Felipe Lopez takes over short and Ron Belliard takes second.

It'll be interesting to see if this affects what the Nats decide to do with Belliard at the trading deadline. D'Angelo Jimenez and Bernie Castro are the best IF choices -- and I use 'best' in a comparative sense -- down at Columbus.

(FREE IAN DESMOND!!!)

  • By now, you know that I like to use Runs Created as a quick proxy for offensive value. To put into context how bad he was in '05 and good this year, he created just 6 fewer runs of offense this year in 301 fewer plate appearances.
